Digital label printing specialist Springfield Solutions has recruited a team of ‘climate champions’ to help the business on its journey towards becoming a carbon net-zero business.

Springfield’s ‘Climate Champions’ are Lauryn Hall, Jack Milson, Julie Fields, Chris Durham, Ian Horne, Jodie Robson, Astryd McCann, Ben Nicolson and Ryszard Ryske. This team is made up of volunteers from each area of the business who are exploring new ways to reduce the company’s carbon output, improve its energy efficiency and calculate carbon data.

Several project ideas have already been submitted to help Springfield achieve its net-zero target, including rainwater harvesting, creating a roof garden, a cycle-to-work scheme, ground source heat pump , use of wind power, an electric vehicle salary sacrifice, the installation of additional timed auto-sensing lighting and smart thermostats. 

In celebrating its ‘Climate Champions’, the company stated, ‘This increased staff involvement in our carbon net-zero goals allows us to bring the team together to improve our understanding of what it takes to become ‘net zero’ as a business and as individuals.’

Springfield Solutions has been nominated in the ‘Environmental company of the year’ category at the Digital Labels & Packaging Awards 2023; check back to see who has won what as and after this year’s award winners are revealed next Thursday (29 June)
